City Will Help With River Crossings Study

January 22, 1998|JOHN CANALIS

The city will participate in a study on proposed Santa Ana River crossings between the Fountain Valley-Huntington Beach border and Costa Mesa.

Two bridges have long been proposed in a county highway plan to reduce traffic congestion, although construction funds have never been made available.

The study will examine three options:

* Building bridges connecting Garfield Avenue to Gisler Avenue in Costa Mesa and Banning Avenue with 19th Street in Costa Mesa.

* Scrapping the project.

* Building an alternative route linking Garfield Avenue to the southbound San Diego Freeway, and constructing a bridge connecting Brookhurst Street to 17th Street via Bluff Road.

The county, Costa Mesa and Newport Beach will share the $200,000 cost of the study. Fountain Valley will commit staff hours to the project.
